I did not see your whole post for some reason. Hmm. But I did notice that ER took the #1 spot in the Nielsen Ratings this week. An approx 31.4 million people watched the ER episode! That's no small feat in this "Sweeps Month" where ratings define all. :) Oh yea baby!

Sorry.. I had code in my post.. here it is without it.

ER: pain is NBC's gain NBC's ER drew the largest TV audience for a regular series since the Seinfeld finale two years ago. The death of Kellie Martin's character (Lucy Knight) helped ER attract 39.3 million viewers and a 20.1 rating in adults 18-49 last Thursday (Feb. 17), according to Nielsen Media Research. It was the fifth most watched episode of the drama ever and helped NBC dominate the night in the ratings and overtake ABC for the February sweeps lead in the key 18-49 demo. Through 15 nights of the sweep period, NBC is averaging a 6.2 rating/16 share in adults 18-49. NBC now leads ABC, which is averaging a 5.7/15 and Fox which is at a 4.7/13.
